Skin ADV

Bits And Chips is not a huge site, we don't have important partners (due to our indipendence), and so the vists are pretty low (sigh!). However, this doesn't mean that we are a gossip site. When we write something, it's because we think that the rumor is true (Our Tweets are made for fun. The news we think are reliable are posted on this site!)



We have our sources, a lot of sources, so shit happens. We try to skrim the bad news, but sometimes it's not enough. But when we go wrong, we haven't problem to say it:

A journalist have to be fair and honest with his own readers.

So, because a lot of users, in a lot of forums, write that B&C is just a clickbait site, we want to show you our collection of some news come true.
